Ford and ROUSH Performance teamed up to create a custom ride inspired by U.S. Army Air Force Colonel Bud Anderson. Col. Anderson served in World War II as a triple ace pilot flying P-51 Mustang fighter planes dubbed ‘Old Crow.’ The one-off 2019 Ford x ROUSH Performance Mustang GT ‘Old Crow’ will go up for auction at Airventure this year.
This one-of-a-kind GT features a custom livery and budgeting to replicate Colonel Anderson’s classic P-51 Mustang fighter plane. It has a Roush grill with a P-51 badge on the front and ‘Old Crow’ adorning the hood, as well as an authentic Eighth Air Force emblem badge on the deckled panel. The wartime-inspired ride houses ROUSH Performance TVS R2650 supercharger, boosting the 5L V8 engine to 710 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque. It also features a ROUSH Performance cold air induction system, Ford Performance custom active exhaust system, and Ford’s MagneRide damping system. The ride sits on custom 20-inch lightweight Roush wheels wrapped in 275/35R Continental ExtremeContact sport tires. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to support the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth and adult aviation programs, preparing America’s next ace pilots.
